Harvest Festival Fun

Tonight was the annual Harvest Festival at our Awana church club.  Normally the girls go as unique Bible characters but this year they wanted to do something a little different.

We spent the entire afternoon together planning, cutting, and sewing.  Then we printed masks and did makeup.  We went all out!

Denna wanted to be a mermaid princess:

I used a simple template for the shape, 2 layers of fabric for the front and back, and a layer of stiff interfacing in between.  I didn’t have time to flip it inside out so I just left the raw edges.

By making a little opening at the bottom I was able to slide a small headband through so she could wear the tiara comfortably.
